I have also spoken at TEDx…

In the months since I have converted to Islam I have met many Muslims and learned so much about my new faith. I firmly believe this religion is perfect, although not all of its followers are. I think that is one of the things that makes it difficult for a new Muslim to learn about Islam. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with learning “how to be a good Muslim”. I see different Muslims who practice the religion in different ways, and I think I need to do everything in order to be “the perfect Muslim”. However, there is no such thing and I need to be reminded of that from time to time.

“If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astonishing results are the three criteria of a human genius, who could dare compare any great man in history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws, and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples, dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the then inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and the souls.

Iqama is an arabic word and it has two meanings:
An “Iqama” is a reference to the second call to prayer that is performed in the masjid prior to the start of salah. This call to prayer is quieter than the first, and more urgent. It signals the people within the masjid to hasten to fulfill the obligation of prayer and to fortify their connection with Allah (swt).
An “Iqama” can also be used as a reference to documents of identification or citizenship.
